Students and faculty at Wyoming Area Catholic helped Holy Rosary School in Duryea during their flooding crisis. Due to the loss of all books in the library at Holy Rosary, students at Wyoming Area Catholic were invited to purchase an “Accelerated Reader” titled book during the Scholastic Book fair to donate to Holy Rosary for use in their library and for the Accelerated Reading program. Under the direction of Mrs. Theresa Sabetta, school librarian, students purchased in excess of 500 books that have been donated to Holy Rosary’s library.

The faculty of Wyoming Area Catholic purchased and collected art supplies for the art department and classrooms at Holy Rosary in hopes of replenishing those supplies that were lost.

Aclothing drive that was underway at the school during the time of the flooding, was re-directed and clothing collected was donated to flooding victims in the West Pittston community who are neighbors to Wyoming Area Catholic.
